This week I had the awesome privilege of speaking in the girl’s club at Awana. (Their parent’s were there….have mercy, I was nervous.) When I was preparing, I’ll confess to complete cluelessness as to what to teach on. I pondered the pumpkin carving demonstration complete with candle inside. *You know-You are the light of the world….*
Instead. I settled on “The Choice is Yours.” a boost from a kids devotional.
The verse we studied was in Joshua 24:14-15. “Choose this day who you will serve.”
I was struck not necessarily by the call for obedience and loyalty (which is where I parked my teaching-that we have an important decision EVERY day to choose God. Not just parents on election day. Though, surely, that keeps my mind reeling.) , but honestly I spent a good bit of personal time camped out on the chapter before.
